Default Good Duo with a Ranger

Hello all,

I'm coming back again, and introducing a friend to the game for the first time. He's going with a Ranger, and I'm wondering what some good ideas are to duo with him for low level stuff. I usually play a wizard myself, but I'm wondering if a Paladin or Shaman might be a good choice. Thanks much!

Go with shaman if he wants to just face tank stuff.

Wizard/ranger can be surprisingly effective since he can snare and keep aggro on things with flame lick(best snap aggro in the game) while you nuke them down. It works but its a bit of a boring strategy for him.

We will have to try that ranger wizard combo when he catches up to my wizard. Enchanter you say?

Anything with fear works well. Cleric is even a good one.

Enchanter is a good duo. Pretty annoying tho unless the ranger is stupidly twinked. Prefer pally/enchanter for that kind of unique duo. Even with slow rangers still take a ton of damage and their heals blow until lvl 57.

Id go ranger/shaman in your scenario.

55+ for churning content with a pretty well geared ranger I most enjoyed necromancer. There is a suprising amount of synergy and bases covered there

If we are talking about lower end, on my live shaman i enjoyed duoing with rangers.

Yea I'm not sure we will be able to make it to really high levels, but we will see how things go. Really appreciate the advice everyone, I'll probably go shaman for now, and try my 30 druid or enchanter or wizard when he gets that high

Make sure he knows that rangers can be awesome pullers with harmony and things like that... and for that reason I'd try to stick to outdoor zones which is where you'll get the most out of his skill set. <3
